Two New Picks to the list

transatlanticbook_review_behind-the-beautiful-forevers

 

I am excited to announce both our September and October reads for book club. For September we will be revisiting with Colum McCann, author of “Let the Great World Spin”. In “TransAtlantic” McCann relies again on his Irish heritage to weave a tale of two continents and three centuries.

After our jaunt to  Ireland we will travel to India for a heart-breaking work of nonfiction by Pulitzer Prize Winner Katherine Boo.

To recap our next Reads:

July: Quest for Justice, Richard Jaffe

August: Eating the Dinosaur, Chuck Klosterman

September: TransAtlantic, Colum McCann

October: Behind the Beautiful Forevers, Katherine Boo

The  Near Reads (or sugestions not selected) included:

  • No Telephone to Heaven, M ichelle Cliff
  • Americanah, Chimamanda Adichi
  • The Art of Hearing Heartbeats, Jan Philipp Sendker
  • The Fault in our Stars. John Green
